5 Ways An ERP Gives You More Time To Manage What Matters

Profitable companies are always evaluating ways in which to improve operational costs while meeting customer needs. Enterprise resource planning (or ERP) systems are an increasingly valuable investment for businesses of all shapes and sizes.

 

By streamlining multiple, yet separate systems into an easy-to-use platform, ERPs connect processes to distribute the most critical data and information quickly for analysis and action.

 

This allows organizations to make better overall business decisions, reduce overhead, and raise the bottom line. ERPs can be expensive. Depending on the size of your company and your needs, systems can reach nearly $1 million. Why would you ever invest in something like it?

Simple.

 

The savings of both time and money.

 

Here are the five ways ERP systems give you more time to manage the parts of your business that matter:

Over 95 percent of businesses report significant operational improvement after ERP implementation. Some of the most common improvements include reducing process time, centralizing data, and increased collaboration across teams.

 

Jobman’s flexible ERPs merge essential processes within your businesses and eliminates the need to separate systems across locations, teams, and departments. Instead, ERPs brings these processes into a single system with the end goal being improved data and information exchanges throughout the business or corporation, no matter how large or small.

More work can be done using automation, which allows you more time to focus on other business processes.

Once you’ve committed to an ERP, immediate benefits include improved communication and seamless business information exchange. This is facilitated through a better and easier flow of critical data throughout departments. Business transactions are now visible to stakeholders as they occur.

 

 Human-based error is eliminated, and accuracy is sharpened. When communication improves, frustration decreases, further heightening employee and team morale and productivity.

You already know that ERPs are designed to be easy-to-use, seamless, and improve communication. ERPs are also intended to standardize, unify, automate, and enhance current business operations from inventory to supply chain management to accounting and customer service.

 

 ERPs also give you analytics and access to dashboards that improve and monitor processes to single out inefficient processes. Workflow analytics will provide you with actionable insights into how to improve everyday operations. Give the feedback to teams, and keep stakeholders in the loop.

ERPs are valuable in better analyzing your spending and purchases throughout a specific or general timetable so you can more accurately realize your inventory needs. This includes damage, waste, tracking, and evaluation of products no longer critical to current business needs.

 

It may be evident that manufacturing companies, Jobman’s specialty, lead the way in ERP implementation. No matter the company, however, ERP systems uniformly help businesses in any sector, especially if you are interested in better understanding the scope and necessity of your inventory and its processes.

 Perhaps you need help gaining insight into filling, refilling, ordering, or reviewing supply chain needs. 

 

An ERP can help align your current inventory with your customer’s current and future needs and help decrease product shortages, budget for inventory volumes, and address supply chain gaps.

Jobman’s ERP systems also serve as a state-of-the-art CRM. On top of allowing various business processes to be merged into a simple platform, it also allows you to align your CRM database into it, enabling comprehensive insight into customer needs.

 

This unified system of records allows companies to track customer needs and desires, no matter where they are in their purchase journey. It goes as far as helping marketing initiatives, and other customer interactions — everything from a payment receipt or invoice to customer feedback or a phone call, ERPs centralize it all.

How SME Manufacturers Can Benefit From A Modern ERP System

There are almost 50,000 SME (small to medium enterprises) manufacturers contributing to Australia’s economy. Small and medium operators employ nearly 65% of the total manufacturing workforce despite only accounting for half the industry. Our industry employs the most apprentices and is the second-largest R&D spender behind scientists.

 

All of that is to say: SME manufacturers have a lot going on. Between growing a successful business, managing a diverse workforce, meeting customer demands and investing in new products and processes, they could use a little help.

 

That’s where manufacturing ERPs for small and medium businesses come in.

Manufacturing ERPs are not just for the big guys anymore

ERPs automate and optimise manufacturing workflows. While many small manufacturers are languishing with legacy bolt-on systems or spreadsheets, modern businesses have moved on.

 

They’ve seen what ERPs do for big business and sought a fit-for-purpose solution. And they’re being rewarded with a significant competitive advantage.

5 benefits of an industry-specific ERP for manufacturers

1. Automate manufacturing processes

Automation is a multi-layered benefit. At the top, you have less human error in mission-critical manufacturing processes. Underneath is the accuracy of automation, ensuring no data is missing or entered incorrectly.

And supporting all that is the speed at which a manufacturing ERP moves jobs along, allowing for increased shop floor capacity with high confidence in your internal processes.

2. Gather insightful data

Good data is the foundation of good decisions. Manufacturing ERPs provide up-to-date data throughout the production process – but it’s in reporting and forecasting where Jobman comes into its own.

That kind of end-to-end information access makes for better forecasting and more confident investment.

3. Streamline operations

We spent years on the shop floor before developing our Jobman ERP for manufacturers. So, we saw first-hand the do-overs and wasted material that decrease margins and erode customer relationships.

 

By channelling operational data into a single secure database, an ERP reduces complexity while improving productivity. Baked-in features like capacity planning and inventory control minimise wastage in terms of time, money, materials and make-goods.  

4. Reduce costs

Time really is money for SME manufacturers. Every hour spent chasing inventory or following up missing timesheets shrinks the job margin and takes away from R&D, business development or OHS improvements.

Jobman improves productivity and minimises waste at every stage of the manufacturing process. Thanks to Xero integration, streamlined purchasing, and timesheet tracking, you can reduce costs without compromising on quality.

5. Clearer communication between departments

Jobman spans the entire organisation, performing cumbersome manual tasks from invoicing to payroll. When everyone is on the same page (or screen), then you don’t need to worry about miscommunication.

 

Your entire operation gets the same information at the same time, eliminating unnecessary delays and improving the workplace environment in one fell swoop.

Get the benefits of a manufacturing ERP made by manufacturers

Jobman is a web-based manufacturing ERP designed by people with years of experience in the industry. Our goal is to give small and medium manufacturers the tools they need to grow with confidence and take on bigger challenges.

Ultimately, that means keeping more manufacturing work in Australia. Supporting our industry and securing employment for apprentices through to old hands.

5 Ways Jobman ERP Software Can Improve Inventory Management

Do you know what you have in stock?

Inventory management is up there with the biggest challenges small and mid-size manufacturers face. Juggling space requirements against delivery timelines, minimising waste, and making sure the right materials are in stock for upcoming jobs.

 

Poor inventory management throws out the entire job cycle. It costs your business money, undermines supplier and customer relationships, and produces unnecessary waste. That’s why we built our manufacturing ERP with intelligent inventory management functionality, based on first-hand experience on the shop floor.

Time to upgrade your inventory management

Too many manufacturers are still manually updating spreadsheets. Not only is this time-consuming, but the risk of human error and missing information is also a threat to the business’ bottom line.

 

Here are 5 ways our end-to-end ERP software helps manufacturers manage the inventory challenge in a smarter way:

1. Inventory tracking

The core consideration of stock control is knowing what you have in the warehouse. Jobman ERP not only tracks stock levels but also integrates the information across your entire business.

 

Staff can access the central database, so they know:

Inventory tracking is instant, centralised, and automated.

2. Automation

Cutting out unnecessary manual processes is the key to unlocking job productivity. Jobman automates so many tedious stock control tasks, from ordering raw materials through to checking off picking lists in real-time. You can even do things like fill Purchase Orders with the minimum reorder level automatically, and watch materials populate in your warehouse item list when they’re received from a supplier.

3. Faster information access

Think about how long it takes to check for raw materials in the warehouse. Now add to that the phone calls, emails and running around to source the parts you need for an ongoing job. And that’s not even counting the cash cost.

 

Jobman reports display all the relevant information you need to streamline your business. The user-friendly interface gives management and employees up-to-date information at their fingertips, with full transparency and accuracy when it comes to inventory.

 

4. Forecasting, restocking, and managing excess inventory

A manufacturing ERP will track stock orders, assign inventory levels, flag items assigned to jobs and link to third-party software to track material use. 

 

This kind of end-to-end inventory tracking means:

Plus, with functionality built-in for job scheduling, ordering, capacity planning and generating custom job specs, each part of the system works together like a well-oiled machine.

5. Business savings

All these efficiencies add up to serious savings. Whether saving cold hard cash by avoiding rush order surcharges, saving time by automating tedious admin tasks, or saving staff hours by streamlining business processes, the benefits span your entire operation.


Jobman is an ERP custom-made for manufacturers with business savings in mind. Our integrated inventory tracking is handled by two related components, availability charts and warehouse items.


Together, and linking to all the other job management features in Jobman, the two modules track inventory from end-to-end accurately and automatically.

What to Look For With Job Scheduling In An ERP

Managing your entire project lifestyle through a single platform

Scheduling is a complex process in the manufacturing industry. One miscalculation can throw out the whole job schedule, meaning missed deadlines and unhappy customers.

 

Savvy manufacturers use job scheduling software to reduce that margin of error and automate tasks that used to take up so much time:

Features and functionality to look for in an integrated job scheduler

VISUAL SCHEDULING SYSTEM

Agenda screens are the most efficient way to keep staff on track and move from one job to the next without delays. If your shop still uses a whiteboard to display the day’s agenda, it’s time to look at upgrading to an ERP with job scheduling functionality

Resource management

Automatically organise all the moving parts: staff, materials, equipment, space, delivery logistics and back-office support. Integrating scheduling software with a comprehensive ERP means all your systems talk to one another for seamless resource management and stock control

Capacity planning

In manufacturing, capacity planning is a moving feast at the best of times. But with a centralised system tracking staff and equipment capacity, you can confidently schedule work without worrying about overtime hours or overloaded machinery.

Flexible scheduling

Job schedulers should work forwards and backwards at the same time. That means:

There’s no need to guess at job timelines. Job scheduling functionality does the calculations for you, so the work always gets done on time.

Finite and infinite scheduling

Some resources, like tools and vehicles, are finite; they have a fixed capacity. Other resources can flex; people can work overtime, and teams can work concurrently. Job scheduling software should know the difference between the two and plan accordingly. 

Routing

Routing functionality moves a job from one stage to the next in the production process. A smart job management software will schedule the correct sequence of steps so you can track the job without needing to move things along manually.

Job status and destination

Not all jobs go straight to the customer. Destination tracking tied to job status management allows you to keep a close eye on where the finished product ends up – as inventory, a delivered product, sub-assembly or intermediate step in a longer process.

Get the best of both worlds with Jobman

Jobman is a manufacturing ERP with integrated job scheduling that cleverly streamlines every stage of every job. Our software is designed to manage complex shop floor schedules, and reduce the manual hours needed to move jobs along.

 

Jobman makes production more transparent, flexible and efficient. Explore the full features on our website, or get in touch for a detailed run-through of the leading manufacturing ERP with built-in job scheduling functionality.

Jobman is Now Certified As a Xero App

Jobman and Xero: Certified efficiency across your business

Jobman is now a certified Xero app. Our industry-leading manufacturing ERP and Xero, arguably the most popular accounting solution for SMEs, work together to streamline processes and maximise productivity.

The benefits reach every part of your business:

Jobman and Xero together provide end-to-end efficiency. By connecting Xero and Jobman, you are synchronising two mission-critical systems. Information flows in two directions, from Jobman to Xero and back the other way.

Double handling doesn’t exist, error rates go way down, and the consolidated system saves you hours.

How Jobman and Xero work together to improve productivity

Easy Invoice Management

Send, track, manage and follow up invoices through a single system. Draft invoices in Jobman and approve in Xero without double-handling data or losing precious time chasing approvals.

More professional customer service

Apply custom branding and themes to invoices and set reminders for Xero to automatically (and politely) follow up when invoices are overdue. 

Act on time and attendance

Jobman’s time and attendance features make timesheet management a breeze. Now with the API integration into Xero, that timesheet data automatically feeds through to Payroll.

Balance bills faster

Sync purchasing data and schedule bills through the API connection. Missed payments often mean delivery delays, which can hold up a job.

Sync contact information

It works both ways: Jobman contact data synchronises to Xero, and updates made in Xero appear in Jobman. Accounting and Sales teams always have the latest information with no internal follow-up or double handling.

Payroll

Automatic data synchronisation means Payroll no longer needs to chase timesheets, double-handle data, or fill in any blanks. Plus, the API integration allows Payroll to manage pay rates, leave and overtime much faster and with more transparency. 

Job management

Jobman is a web-based ERP providing flexibility to manage manufacturing jobs from any device. Xero’s cloud-based platform provides the same agility, meaning you can run your business from anywhere – including generating expense claims, submitting timesheets, and raising invoices.

4 Steps to Managing Manufacturing ERP Customisation

A customised ERP – a system built just for your operating model – is an investment in growing your business. But it can also be a hindrance if the ERP system you have built is poorly managed or inflexible.

 

Before you leap into a customised ERP, look at what your business needs now and in the future. With a clear picture and an understanding of what a custom ERP does, you can invest with more confidence.

Why manufacturers need a customised ERP

Off-the-shelf ERPs do a lot for basic businesses. However, once you grow and diversify your offering, an ERP designed specifically for manufacturers starts to become more necessary. There are just some things regular ERPs don’t include that are crucial to manufacturers.

But that doesn’t always mean you need a customised system if a configurable solution is better. Let’s look at the 4 steps you should take before deciding on a customisable manufacturing ERP.

1. ERP customisation vs configuration: what’s the difference?

Configurable ERP

A combination of off-the-shelf modules fit together to suit your business. Configured ERPs are generally lower in cost and more stable when it comes to updates, but less tailored to the unique challenges your shop floor faces.

Customised ERP

Normally an off-the-shelf solution with custom-built modules to solve specific business problems. More expansive and responsive to your needs, but also riskier depending on the scale and scope.

 

If a manufacturing ERP can be configured to flex and grow with your business, then it might end up a better solution. Or you could look at a hybrid solution, a configured ERP with custom integrations and add-ons.

2. Built-in Abstractions

Abstraction layers are simple in theory, but not always implemented properly in customised ERPs. Think of abstraction like an R&D room separate to the rest of your fabrication floor: a kind of innovation lab where you can test ideas safely.

 

Customised manufacturing ERPs need a layer of abstraction to separate the customised features from the core system. Because third-party updates are automatically rolled out through the cloud, the developers need to be sure they will play nicely before allowing the two to interface. And this is precisely what an abstraction layer does, by letting the developers test third-party updates safely before they can apply to the entire ERP.

3. Consider What You Need Customised

That’s the technical talk out of the way, so let’s get back to what your business needs. Off-the-shelf ERPs come in many shapes and sizes and can even be tweaked based on what new users need.

 

When researching manufacturing ERPs, it’s useful to talk to several suppliers. Get a feel for their flexibility and understand the technical scope of your requirements. You may find some of those problems you thought could only be solved with custom solutions, are common enough in the industry that we’ve already built a feature.

4. ...and kick out what you don't

On the other side, an inflexible ERP can have too many bells and whistles that don’t suit your business. For example, do you need service desk or contract management functions? Or would built-in quote approval and service logs be a more appropriate solution?

 

Not everything in a customised ERP needs to be built from the ground up. Going back to the hybrid model we mentioned earlier, you may even find 95% of the features you need are available in a configured model.

 

In short: The best manufacturing ERP is the one designed for your business now and in the future. Customisable and configurable systems have their pros and cons, and the best way to decide between the two is to speak to Jobman about your specific business goals.

 

Jobman is a flexible ERP designed for the manufacturing industry. With powerful integrations, easy-to-use features, and a modular scale that builds with your business, Jobman is the all-in-one manufacturing ERP for sustained growth.

6 Ways To Increase Productivity for Your Manufacturing Operation

Growing a successful manufacturing business is a pretty simple equation: put out more work without spending more resources. Time is money, as they say. But rushing jobs out from the factory is a fast-track to sacrificing quality.

So, for manufacturers to tip the balance of the equation without seeing quality degrade, the key is to capitalise on latent productivity by finding operational efficiencies.

 

Finding these hidden pockets of efficiency means you may have to ask some tough questions:

In our experience, there are 6 key areas manufacturers can look at to maximise efficiency and help a business boom.

1. Review Current Workflow

Start by looking in the mirror. Regardless of your business’ current size, there are 3 core elements in any job:

2. Update Technology & Processes

If you’ve been in the manufacturing business for a while, it’s understandable you may have let business technology lapse. But many of the common pain points for manufacturers are alleviated by process improvements using software solutions like an ERP.

 

With a customised ERP your entire workflow comes together like a well-oiled machine: 

3. Regular Maintenance

Speaking of well-oiled machines, when was the last time your mission-critical equipment was professionally serviced? From software updates to dated gear mechanisms, preventative maintenance gets ahead of problems to avoid costly downtime.

4. Organise The Workplace

Every half-hour spent rummaging through a stockroom looking for material is wasted time. But organisation goes beyond decluttering and stretches into workflow optimisation on the shop floor.

5. Keep An Eye On Inventory

Like a disorganised workspace, inventory mismanagement is a surprisingly wasteful – if seemingly innocent – foible for manufacturers.

Like a disorganised workspace, inventory mismanagement is a surprisingly wasteful – if seemingly innocent – foible for manufacturers.With an ERP like Jobman, customised to suit the way you do business, manufacturers have a clear handle on inventory to eliminate those unnecessary delays and cost overruns. Jobman’s inventory control module was built specifically for manufacturers, with room to adapt to your operation.

6. Upskill Employees

Our final tip is useful for getting the most out of your workforce. Motivation dwindles when people feel like they’re not challenged, not contributing, and not appreciated. Investing in employee training not only makes for a more engaged workforce, but it also adds value in new offerings and expanded capabilities.

The Better Way To Track Your Employee Timesheets & Attendance

Timesheets are, without a doubt, one of the least popular tasks for employees and management alike. Many manufacturers start with manual timesheets when the business has a handful of employees, but they neglect to overhaul the system as the company grows. So, the inevitable time-tracking problems creep in:

The solution to timesheet trouble: Integrating with an ERP

Manual or standalone timesheet systems are a black hole of admin time. Even if the timesheets are flawless there is still time (and human error risk) to calculate labour costs, reconcile salaries against income, forecast workforce requirements and complete payroll on-time.

 

Integrating time tracking into your Enterprise Resource Planning system, or ERP is a manufacturer’s secret weapon for big productivity boosts. On top of making time tracking a piece of cake, integration provides insight and forecasting advantages you might not even realise exist.

The benefits of integrating timesheet tracking

Single source of truth

All your timesheets are in a centralised (and secure) location. From the dashboard, you can navigate easily through the data to gain valuable insight into how your company runs.

Budget control

As if by magic, job costs have a way of slipping out of control. Even the smallest budget overruns are bad for business. And if there is an opportunity to increase profit without sacrificing quality then surely you want to know about it.

Improve Other Business Functions

Integrating timesheets within an ERP for manufacturers is good for more than tracking time. As your operation grows, the flow-on effects of a customised ERP solution support smooth and sustained expansion.

Streamlined Payroll

Accounts Payable has a hard enough time balancing the never-ending flow of funds, without having to chase down errant timesheets or check who approved overtime. With a time- tracking module integrated into your ERP, the Payroll team has a much easier task.

Finding the right time-tracking solution for your business

Not all ERPs for manufacturers are built alike; some are cookie-cutter and inflexible, while others might not have the functionality you need like automatic time tracking. That’s where Jobman is different. We customise the platform to suit our customers, with a focus on sustained business growth and reduced human error.

Why Manufacturers Need a CRM Built With Them In Mind

Quick recap: What is a CRM?

A CRM or Customer Relationship Management tool is a software to organise customer data. From the moment they become a sales lead (and even before), through the purchase process, after-sales support and ongoing relationships, a CRM keeps all the information in a system that is:

More than 40% of the manufacturing industry uses a CRM. The percentage increases as market cap rises, which suggests a CRM is one of those fundamental tools to build and sustain thriving businesses.

 

Some ERPs for manufacturers have a CRM module. This avoids the need to have parallel separate systems and streamlines the production process by automating back-end tasks. 

What manufacturers need in a CRM

Australia’s manufacturing industry has grown up a lot in the last few decades. Today’s operators are proactive and innovative; a big investment in marketing has seen customer acquisition, product quality, R&D and technology integration become priorities. And we’re now playing on a global stage, with a valuable (and rapidly growing) export market contributing to Australia’s $100 billion manufacturing industry.

Plainly, manufacturers need a CRM designed with consideration for the challenges of our growing industry. But what are the specific features, functions and solutions you should be looking for? 

CUSTOMISED CUSTOMER DATA

CRMs are, in their simplest form, a place to keep customer data for easy recall. But small fabricators and entrepreneurs, through to large scale manufacturing businesses, all need more.

It’s the little things that a manufacturing CRM enables – like delivery time tracking, well-documented specification requirements, service call histories – that build more fruitful customer relationships. 

Streamlined supply chain

This is where a combined ERP and CRM for manufacturers provides an operational advantage. Linking and automating data from the earliest stages of a new business lead, right through to ordering, manufacturing, delivery, and after-sales support, improves the customer relationship and saves significant admin time. 

Forecasting

Australian manufacturers are known as innovators. In every industry, from cabinet making to high-tech microelectronics, accurate forecasting has several benefits:

By improving product information and offering a better overview of demand forecasting, a manufacturing CRMs shorten the time to market and enable any operation to be more agile.

Quality control

It’s a no-brainer that to keep your business afloat, you need to keep delivering high-quality work. Defective products bear large costs, both in dollars and reputation capital.

 

Manufacturing ERPs with a CRM module provide the answer in analytics. Because the system keeps all the data together, including hard product data and qualitative feedback captured in customer conversations, your business can identify potential production flaws before they impact the bottom line.

Top 3 myths of a customisable ERP system

They’re expensive

Customised ERPs are cost-effective when compared to a bespoke software solution, or using no system at all. Depending on the level of customisation, you will likely be surprised at how affordable a custom ERP actually is. 

You need to change your workflow

If an ERP requires you to change the way you work, it’s time to look at a different solution. Customised ERPs slot in around existing workflows and integrate seamlessly with third-party platforms to remove the barriers to implementation. 

The system is hard to learn
